RIVERTON, Utah– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is warning drivers to plan ahead for a seven-month road closure at 12600 South in Riverton in order to build a new freeway-style interchange. The road will be closed in both directions at Bangerter Highway starting on Jan. 21. The closure will remain in place until August 2021. 


 

Although east-west traffic will be restricted on Bangerter Highway, UDOT announced Thursday Bangerter Highway will still be open to northbound and southbound drivers during the construction. But, the traffic light at 12600 S will be removed permanently. Additionally, right turns at both on and off 12600 S will remain open. 

“We know this closure will be impactful, so we’ve worked closely with the city and local businesses to minimize inconvenience for the community. The trade-off is, the closure allows us to build the interchange more quickly and safely, at a lower cost to taxpayers,” said Marwan Farah, UDOT Bangerter Interchanges project manager.

UDOT provides alternate routes to take in Riverton 

Local drivers in the area will have a handful of alternative routes they can take to avoid the closure, including 11400 South and 13400 South.
